Sunday, June 12, could be your lucky day at our annual fishing derby. (This event is for members and their guests only; guests are responsible for any nonderby beach fees.) Registration ($5, including lunch; donations accepted) starts at 9:00 a.m., the fishing begins at ten and lunch is about noon. Fish for hours, enjoy a freshly cooked fish-and-chip lunch—and maybe even win first prize in the fundraiser: a portable gas grill! Tickets are only $1 each; see Kemmy, camp 153.—Kemmy Parisi
As discussed at the October semiannual meeting, we are in great need of a new lawnmower. To save money, the mower should be purchased before December 31. Accordingly, the board is asking the membership to attend a special meeting on Sunday, December 28, at 12:00 p.m. to vote on purchasing a new Kubota 60-inch, 26-hp Diesel, zero turn, riding mower. The price would go up 4 percent January 1. A new lawnmower will inevitably have to be purchased soon regardless. Without gaining approval for this mower at this special meeting it will cost more next year.
At least 20 percent of the membership is required to attend to have a quorum for a vote. Please make every effort to attend.
The fall membership meeting will be held Sunday, October 26, at noon, with registration beginning at 11:00 a.m., in the Clubroom. All members are urged to attend this very key meeting, at which many issues important to all members are decided. Let your voice be heard! A light lunch will be served at the break, for a nominal donation.
The 2014 Annual Meeting is scheduled for April 27 in the Clubroom. Registration begins at 11:00 a.m. and the meeting begins at noon. It is very important that members attend the meeting. Many issues need to be discussed and voted on. The Board is looking to change bylaws and we need 51 percent of members in good standing to participate in the voting. (We plan to hand out “mail ballots” to all members in good standing who are in attendance and will mail ballots to everyone else who is not there, thus saving the association a lot of time and money.) We are offering some incentives for members to show up and we will be raffling off some prizes, which include a hand-blown glass mug donated by Chris Nordin, a $50 dinner gift certificate donated by Jim Santti, Finn Camp Store merchandise, a Sauna Card, a Friday Night Grill gift certificate and bar coupons. Please come to the meeting and be a part of the decision making of our association. The sauna will be open after the meeting.
